The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has discovered what causes the dreaded global epidemic of Coronavirus.
According to Magu, the cause of the Coronavirus that has killed over a thousand persons globally is corruption.
Magu made his discovery public on Tuesday at the passing out parade of 281 cadets of the EFCC Detective Inspector Course-5, at the Nigerian Defence Academy, Kaduna.
The EFCC is not satisfied with just prosecuting and jailing the fraudsters, rather the commission has concluded plans to reform them in collaboration with relevant government agencies towards making them better citizens,” Magu said.
“EFCC has zero tolerance for corruption as our mandate is to kill corruption as corruption is worse than all the diseases we have now and I strongly believe coronavirus is caused by corruption.
“Corruption is a huge burden to our nation it has spread to insecurity, poverty, unemployment, falling standard of education, weak access to affordable health care, falling infrastructure and so many others.”
